For the third time, because I want to take it abroad. I would rather help Japanese quake victims right now because I have never helped them before, and right now they need it more than most.

Suffering is suffering.

That would depend on if we believed in god or not....

Fair enough, let me put it another way for you: Are all humans equal or not?

Like I stated before, (getting tired of answering the same questions over and over) I haven't been financially stable enough to pull this off until recently. Why not hispanics? Arabs? Africans? We have a choice of which nationality, culture, organization we can help. Now that I am financially prepared and stable, I would love to take in a Japanese family. Right now they need it.

Oooohh so if you're Japanese you have skills, income, and property? Not like these... other races.


You catch on quick! Oh wait that was probably sarcasm from you...

Well in a word... yes. But it isn't quite that simple is it?

Lets look at literacy and education levels in Japan: Among the highest literacy rates in the world, highest college enrollment in the world, etc etc I won't even provide a source as they are easy to find and is sourced independently enough to be considered common knowledge.

Now lets look at my claim they had income: for the last 60 years Japan averages a 2.6% unemployment and is currently reported at 4.9% compared to the US 9.5%. So I'd say for the most part yeah they had income.

Now should we begin comparing this to some of the third world countries that are having disasters?

See we just had an educated first world country that leads the world in education, technology, and manufacturing skill. This is why Japan. This is why we want to help them. It is a wise decision to help those who have a proven record of helping themselves and through no fault of their own need some help.

I'm not saying this is right on every level, but this is the reality.

Yes, but that has nothing to do with taking in a family in need. Why not Haitian? Well why not Japanese? Why not men from my country? Because I would like to take it abroad for once.

Actually totally different things and sad you compare humans to puppies. There are hundreds of nationalities in need. I cannot help them all. Instead I pick one that I think needs it more than the others. I think the Japanese do right now.

Better to help one than to help none. I would rather help a Japanese family out and risk being compared to someone picking out a puppy.

Actually yes I have..!!

Have you?

I have been unepmloyed and I have been homless and I know what it is like... But Why was I homeless and un-employed?? Same reason so many other people are.. I was too stuck up myself to go and do work that nobody else wanted to do.. I stopped being lazy and helped myself by getting training and education and got a second start in life.. If I could do it, so can the others out there.!!

Those jobs are still there and there are more than enough to give the entire homeless population of Australia jobs... They just don't want them..!!

Now, the Japanese are, like a poater above said, educated, skilled and haard working and can fit in and preform more techical jobs. Most of those homeless and unemployed/uneducated peple here can't be doctors, IT specialists, Professors, teachers, etc, etc...

And there are so many jobs like that waiting to be filled here.. The Japanese can fill those jobs..!!

So Yes, the japanese over the homeless, the Africans and everyone else!!

The japanese are good honest people, those comming from third world, war torn countries only drain our system of resources... they don't get jobs and they more often than not, become involved in crime. "Not all of them, but the majority of them do"...

In Dandenong, where the african population has risen sharply over the last ten years, there are gangs that hang out at shopping centres. What they usually do is split into 2 groups and one will herd someone comming out of a shop, right into the second group and then bash and mug them for everything they have. Happens about 4 times a week. We had an off duty police oficer hacked to death in Melbourne central last year.. guess who did it? A gang of african refugees.

True, it isn't their fault, it's how they were brought up in their own countries but the majority of them bring their ways with them when they imigrate.

Would you share your home with people like that or with people you know will be good, honest and honerable?

So then, there is more value in helping this set of humans than that set of humans.

I know a few people asked me if I was typing from buried rubble. Nope can't say that I am. I am typing off a disconnected android phone via wi-fi that someone gave me after they cracked the screen and broke the casing. The reason I threw out the comment about helping a local was mainly because, the likely hood of Japanese people either wanting to or being able to come out here probably isn't high. During Katrina so few people wanted to leave their lives behind despite the huge disaster.

Besides when you're desperate you'll try just about anything. I grew up poor and was told if I studied and tried hard anything was possible. Because of how poor my parents were they didn't pay for my college or qualify to co sign any of my loans. No one told me that once the lender decided enough was enough they would cut me off even if I was 9 months from graduation.

There are people worse off then me. I used to think how did that guy end up sleeping in the streets? Now I know its because if you can't even get a minimum wage job to afford a haircut or a shave you end up there slowly but surely.

If I were caught in a natural disaster people would feel sorry just like all the poor in America. But since I've fallen on extremely hard times its "get a job you lazy ass." lol Lazy ass who once had a 3.8 GPA in college while working a full time 60 hour a week job. The same ass who cleaned bunny poo at a farm for 20 bucks, shoveled driveways during the blizzard with no coat, gloves or a hat for $25 bucks a pop from 3pm to 10pm.

Natural disasters hurt but when a financial disaster makes you wonder if you will ever be able to buy yourself a gas station sandwich you'll wish a tsunami toppled a building down right on top of you instead.

Let me help you out a little, it seems your running out of questions and in turn are trolling. I am one of the ones who would love to take in a Japanese family, and the answers to why are in multiple posts.

This reminds me of all the posturing when a celebrity offers to adopt a child from a 3rd world country. They are lifting someone from a life of poverty and likely early death. But the PC brigade jumps on them.
And so it is here. There are enough studies about how it is human nature to identify more with those who have similar cultural values or who are simply more familiar to us. In this case add to the mix that this disaster has been documented like never before. I'm on the same lines as the OP and would also offer my home. So shoot me I'm human.

THIS IS WHAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE... and I open my house the same!

To the people of the world: I beg you do not judge our society based on crimes that our corrupt goverment commits in our name. The majority of us dont want to be in war with any of the nations were at war with! "We the people" no longer exists! We have no say in what our government does anymore! Proof? 60+% (plus 10% voting "unsure") dont want our military to invade libya yet hereeeeee we go!

Thomas Jefferson always had it right. This isnt America and what our government does does not dictate what WE THE PEOPLE really want!

I'm absolutely not proposing that we shouldn't help people; quite the contrary. I'm pointing out that we're on the internet trying to help people half a world away while we ignore our doorbell. So at the moment we're helping none.
